Mayberry vacation, day three, so far I have:
-Spent time with The Girls, catching up and scheming for the future.
-Spent two glorious mornings on the back patio with my parents, drinking coffee and reading the morning newspaper.
-Slept in past six a.m.
-Blown my carefully crafted diet well out of the water.
-Stayed up way past my bedtime and not regretted it for a minute.
-Enjoyed a couple of hours at the lake, watching the boys fish while catching up with Reese and one of her classmates from high school.
So far, The Man-Cub has:
-Caught a fish (on his first cast!) at that local lake where, incidentally, I spent a good part of my teenage years (decidedly not fishing).
-Stayed up well past his bedtime, playing Xbox and snacking in a room where eating food was once forbidden, especially food in the hands of children.
-Spent some time catching up with Reese's son, whom he gets to see once a year, if he is lucky.
-Slept past noon.
-Enjoyed the spoilage that only the Pod People can provide, including dining on every special treat his grandmother could make for him and ordering her around like a short-order cook.
It's been a pretty productive two days and today should prove equally busy. The Teenager and Not-the-Boyfriend arrive later this morning and I am certain to have an update on their activities in a couple of days.
The only negative thing I can possibly identify about the vacation thus far is that it is going by entirely too quickly.
After all, there truly is no place like home.
